Aground again ?

Thought we'd head up past Felixstowe. Saw a plastic bermudan having trouble but our brains obviously not in gear. Got close and saw the lifeboat had a line to her. Went the wrong side to avoid it and got stuck on Harwich shelf ourselves.

Honestly, Robinetta is not a pelagic fish.

Lifeboat tried towing us off, but nasty noises down below. Moved the towrope to the mast and that worked.

Tired and demoralised, we messed about a bit in the harbour and went home.
